As a student, you probably fall into one of two categories: you love to smoke, or you hate it.
Whatever your opinion, the chances are that you have a smoker in your life; it could be a friend, a family member, or even a lecturer that’s helping you achieve the grades you need.
Below, we’ve put together some great gift ideas for the smoker in your life…
Alternatives to cigarettes
Newsflash: in May 2020, menthol cigarettes will be banned in the UK and across the European Union.
That’s bad news if you’ve got a friend who prefers menthol over traditional tobacco.
If you’re looking for a great gift idea, consider menthol alternatives from companies such as Mentholyzer.
They’re safe, legal, and ensure consumers can get their menthol kick!
Time for an obvious one.
Live with someone who’s always flicking their ash onto the ground when you’re in the garden, and leaving pesky cigarette butts on the floor?
Buy them a new ashtray this Christmas, and they’ll never need to do it again.
There are so many to choose from, whether you choose a spinning variety to hide the ash, a games controller novelty ashtray or a portable ashtray that sits in the cup holder of a car. Yep, that really is a thing!
Toothpaste for smokers
If you’ve got a loved one who’s conscious of their stained teeth because of smoking, always moaning on about their yellow teeth, then why not treat them to some luxury smoker’s toothpaste or teeth whitening set for their next birthday?
A little disclaimer here: you should only buy someone toothpaste if they’ve mentioned it – you’d be pretty upset if someone gave you a box of tooth whitening paste if you thought you had decent teeth. Always be sensitive!
A novelty lighter
Whilst we’re on the subject of novelty gifts, you can’t go too far wrong with a novelty lighter to give to a smoker.
Not only is this a relatively inexpensive gift, but it’s a great way to show your friend or family member that you love them – they’ll remember you whenever they light up.
Indeed, you can even buy personalised lighters nowadays with photographs or initials.
New vape flavours
Got a mate who’s made the jump from standard cigarettes to vaping?
With so many flavours to choose from, why not stock up on some of their favourites and put them in a box?
There are thousands of vape flavours on the market, and some of the strangest include hot dogs, peanut butter, beer, and Red Bull. Get experimental and your friend will love you for it!
A quit smoking book
Finally, if you’re concerned about your friend’s health, consider buying them a quit smoking book.
Again: be cautious that you don’t upset or offend them; only buy them a self-help book if they’ve already mentioned that they want to quit.
They’ll be grateful you’ve taken the time to find them a useful resource, and they’ll be more likely to read it if it’s from a loved one.
